    hub assy

    I replaced the hub bearing assembly myself - not too difficult. I can see it being a bit costly if you have it done.

    i just meant costly as opposed to repacking.. the hub assy's are a few hundred bucks each, labor is not too bad on them it is more cost of parts.

    probably not too good.....I would consider doing it anytime over 80,000 miles if it was me. I have these on my Jeep Wrangler, and I felt safer after I put the new ones on. Granted they will probably run for awhile, better safe than sorry in my mind. Watch where you get them though, sometimes you are worse off with an autozone part.

    it sounds like a brake squeak, but you will hear it when you are driving (more common when turning).

    It isn't a question of replacing them by mileage... replace them when they start to make noise.
